Day 3: The Danger of Shifting Sands
And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand.Matthew 7:26 (KJV)
Reflection: The foolish man hears the Word but doesn’t apply it to his life. It’s a strong warning against complacency in our walk with Christ. Without active obedience to God’s Word, we risk building our lives on unstable ground, the shifting sands that can’t withstand life’s storms.
Illustration: Picture a house built on the beach, it might look great on a sunny day, but when the tide comes in, it’s at risk. The same is true for a life built without regard to Christ’s teachings.
Prayer: Dear God, keep us from the danger of the shifting sands. May we never neglect the importance of applying Your Word in our lives. Amen.
